Excerpt: I am loving this camera so far. The only drawback I have found is the large file size which causes me to run through more memory cards per session. The best thing I love is the improved ISO capabilities.
Excerpt: After a few weeks of shooting with the d800 I can't find a single concern with the quality. Coming from traditional photography background and never pleased with digital I must admit the camera is nice. I was disappointed with how loud the shutter is, I assumed it would be quieter but it turned out to be quite a bit louder than originally expected.
Excerpt: I bought the D800 mainly for the camera's large sensor size, 36Mp and it will be back-up to my Nikon D3s. And I am interested in maing large prints.<br />During the winter months on the Great South Bay, local lakes and ponds, ducks, loons, grebes, and sometimes snowy owls show up.<br />In general using the D3s, 12mp camera,and a 500mm AFS lens I would wind up sometimes with 3mp files after cropping.
Excerpt: I've owned a Nikon D200 for years. It was long passed time to upgrade. What I found with the switch is that even though the file sizes are enormous, it's totally worth it!I love that I didn't have to toss my compact flash cards and move to an entirely new storage system. They kept all the things that were great about the older versions. The High ISO performance is probably my favorite thing. Working in rather dark situations was very difficult with a D200.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, High ISO Performance
Excerpt: well i got this camera to replace my old nikon d7000 and i have to say that its wonderful! great performance in low light situations, the timelap option its great... ufff... i could stay here and talk about this camera all day... anyways, in general speaking i think its a great camera... and i really really really recommend this to a friend!
Pros: Easy To Use, Good Image Quality, High ISO Performance
Excerpt: the d800 and d800e by far the best dslr for landscape studio photography, but if you need it for sports and wedding find another DSLR because it misses focus many times specially with fast prime lenses .
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD
Excerpt: Although I'm still getting the hang of the new controls (previous camera was Nikno D600) and the slightly larger body, the quality of the images that this 36mp camera is producing are really wonderful. There are powerful image settings that I'm experimenting with as well and am learning something new almost every day.
Pros: Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Good Image Quality, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD
Excerpt: This camera has one of the finest resolutions possible thus far in a 35mm sensor format. This comes at a very costly price, and that price is signal to noise ratio. It does not come anywhere close to the superb noise free high ISO performance or long exposure capabilities of a D4 or a D3.<br /><br />I do like the added pro features that place it somewhere in-between the semi-pro bodies and their full sized big brother pro models.
Pros: Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Large Clear LCD
Excerpt: Okay, I would recommend this to a friend who had a lot of money. I had no business buying this; I was seduced by a friend's photo of goats. No lie. Beautiful dynamic range. I have yet to go out for a long shoot, I have just messed with it the house. So I write this review now for the raffle, and to keep others from having the same horrible experience I had.<br /><br />My first pictures were black. <br /><br />It took me a while to realize the meter is reversed.
